Rich and indulgent, triple chocolate brownie cups are a chocoholic’s dream! Baked in a muffin tin, you’ll love these easy fudgy brownies.


  • 2/3 cup (94 g) flour
  • 2 Tbsp (12 g) unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 tsp (4 g) baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1.5 g) salt
  • 8 ounces (226 g) semisweet chocolate, finely chopped (recommended: 70% chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup (57 g)  unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2 large eggs (100 g), at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (92 g) light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp (4 g) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (85 g) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (85 g) white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 12-cup standard muffin pan with baking cups. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Place chopped chocolate and butter in a double boiler or in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Slowly melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Combine eggs, sugars, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl fitted with a whisk attachment and whisk together on medium speed for 5 minutes. Reduce speed to low and beat in melted chocolate for 1 minute. Add flour mixture and mix on low speed for 20 seconds, just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips (dough will resemble a gooey brownie batter).
  4. Use a cookie scoop coated lightly with nonstick spray to fill each baking cup 3/4 full of batter. Bake for 25 to 27 minutes, until tops are shiny and crackly and a tester inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Remove from oven let cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing from pan to cool completely.
  5. If desired, serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and dust with cocoa powder.
